Love’s Precious Gift

From the words of author and poet, Ana Claudia Antunes:  “True love is like little roses; sweet, fragrant in small doses.”

God joins this woman and man

Love bringing His precious gift

As only He really can


Love begins with our Father

Nurturing words speak each day

Hand in hand, with each other

God’s grace and peace lights His way


Love matures, like fall’s harvest

Built upon God’s rock of trust

Daily hope breathes at sunrise

Walk under angel’s stardust


Love meaning more than just words

Through valleys to mountaintops

Joining as one, each ribbon

God’s love never, ever stops


God’s Word builds a cornerstone for love’s words and actions in our lives.

From Song of Solomon 8:6-7:  “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave.  Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame.  Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.  If one offered for love all the wealth of one’s house, it would be utterly scorned.”

    • Thanks for sharing your words here. The first set of verses and the last set of verses were written by me in a Valentine’s Day card for my wife. I thought I would add the middle verses to complete the poem. I guess you could say I double-dipped. God’s blessings to you this week.
